For Wayne's World Fans
The movie Bohemian Rhapsody opens today. In the mid-1970's the song itself was a spectacular hit in Great Britain, but it only had moderate success in the US where it rose only as far as No. 9 on Billboard's Hot 100.

In one scene of the movie Freddie Mercury threatens to walk out on a record company executive if he doesn't release Bohemian Rhapsody as the first single off the "A Night at the Opera" album. The executive is played by Mike Meyers, a casting choice made with purposeful irony because the film Wayne's World, released in 1992 and starring Mike Meyers and Dana Carvey, was responsible for introducing Bohemian Rhapsody to a new generation of American music fans. After the film's release Bohemian Rhapsody rose to No. 2 on the American charts.

Here for Wayne's World fans is that iconic scene:

As well, Mike Meyers had to fight to have Bohemian Rhapsody used as the song. The execs wanted a Guns 'N Roses song at the time.
Mike threatened to walk from the film... and they backed down and let him do the song.
